Collection of useful, relevant or inane places on the the Internets for 18th October through 21st October:
- CCIE>Blog_ / Find a Blog – IPExpert release their blogging “platform” for all of us to use.
- Security Configuration Guides – The American National Security Agency publishes some handy (if a bit simple) guides for securing a number of different things. Now while you could do a better job as a specialist task, these are very sueful starting points for a security review, especially is you are not strong on, say, MAC OS X.A fellow network blogger reminded me about this by posting, but I lost the source. Sorry.
- Apple – Get a Mac – Watch the TV Ads – Bean Counter – The latest Mac Advertisement – absolutely hilarious – makes a point that spending $300 million in advertising is NOT fixing your product.I wonder if they could use this in Management training, show them that marketing doesn’t always work.
- Zone-Based Policy Firewall Design and Application Guide – Cisco Systems – Internetwork Expert posted on Cisco IOS Zone Based Firewall recently. This is the Cisco Design Guide on many different methods and ways of using it.One note of interest – the CLI is almost identical to the ACE module.
- iSCSI dodges Fibre Channel over Ethernet noose ï The Register – This guy thinks that iSCSI is for greenfield sites not for real networks.Favourite bit: ” he said, adding that he isn’t worried if FCoE only appeals to existing Fibre Channel customers. ” – gosh, is he saying the FCoE is a legacy technology even before its come to market ? I think he is.
- FCoE not just for sale, Cisco Nexus FCoE also in production – Data Center Networks – No really, someone is actually using FCoE ! And it’s us. Wow, brilliant.What no customers ? Oh, FCoE how we love thee.
